Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra presents Brilliantly Orchestrated Live on June 3
The season finale explores music by brilliant orchestrators capable of creating beautiful imagery through the use of imaginative orchestral colors. The energetic overture to Glinka’s opera Ruslan and Lyudmila, a work based on Pushkin’s poem by the same name, is followed by John Adams’ The Chairman Dances: A Foxtrot for Orchestra, from his opera Nixon in China. 2007 International Tchaikovsky Competition Gold Medal Winner violinist Mayuko Kamio has been “praised for her luxurious silken tone, long expressive phrasing and virtuoso techniques” and is performing Mendelssohn’s popular violin concerto. Rimsky-Korsakov’s masterpiece Scheherazade, an epic fairytale that includes solos for most principal members of the SBSO, concludes the concert.
